03/05/2019 - 4:07pm Simply calling something…

Simply calling something absurd does not make it untrue. What's fairly ironic here is that you defend a post ranting about the evils of driving ad revenue and then dismiss the idea that a "free" site that exists because it monetizes fandom by selling ad space is also driving ad revenue. I'm sure you'd like to quibble over the degree to which both these institutions are exploiting their customers (read: us), but handwaving a valid criticism as "absurdist" without actually addressing the argument is one of my least favorite rhetorical moves. 

 

To be clear, I don't fault Delany or Brian for monetizing fandom for their own personal gain. They both put out a product that I would rather consume than not.

Penn State is better than 9 of the 10 other teams in Nevada's conference....

02/19/2019 - 3:02pm Their entire conference has …

Their entire conference has (besides Nevada) exactly one team better then Penn State.They got thumped by 30 by a team that is a full 120 spots worse than Penn State per Kenpom. There is nothing redeeming about their schedule.

My dude, bad form to talk about the "biggest scandal in NCAA history". Unsure if you haven't heard, but there's a certain doctor at a certain university whose got that legacy.

11/01/2018 - 4:57pm Their AD is still demanding…

Their AD is still demanding Home and Homes. They know they're the ones making the bigger ask. P5 teams have a full season of strong SOS games to look forward to in an attempt to build a resume. Why add a UCF and take the hit, especially if UCF is demanding that you also lose the revenue by going on the road. If UCF really wanted to make this happen, they'd go the Boise State or FSU rout and schedule one off away games against good P5 teams.

10/29/2018 - 8:25pm This got me a bit more on…

This got me a bit more on edge for the game this weekend, but then I took a look at S&P. We're top 15 in Rushing, Passing (!), Standard Downs, Success Rate. We are very bad on clear passing downs (86) and explosiveness. I think this team is built to grind teams into dust and has gotten very good at doing this. With our OL rounding into form and PSU struggling mightily on Standard Downs (40), and Rush Defense (54), this looks like a decent matchup on paper.

03/06/2018 - 2:24pm Numbers

I'm not sure where you're getting your numbers. White players hold a majority in 3 positions, QB, C, and TE (this one is pretty tight at 55/45). Center is the second lowest paid position thats regularly on the field (RT is lowest).

Quarterback is definitely the highest paid position and there are far more white quarterbacks. From there, in descending order, WR, DT, DE, LB, CB. All of those positions have more black players at around am 88/12 ratio. LT is next, with a pretty narrow ratio.

 

Additionally there are around 100 QBs in the league at any time. Most of the positions I listed as being next highest in salary have between 200 and 300.

02/27/2018 - 6:34pm This is the argument

These kids arent being forced to do this. The vast majority of student athletes are 100% certain that they won't be making the big bucks when their wrestling, gymnastics, track (insert non rev sport here) careers are over. They put in the work anyway. If football and basketball didn't have major leagues and got just as much media exposure as those sports, kids would still be signing up to play.

02/27/2018 - 6:28pm thank you

This all just smacks of jealousy. These kids have an awesome opportunity to go play ball for a billion dollars if they're really good. If they're not really good, they get a free education that costs most mortals well over a hundred grand. What do they have to do in return, you ask? Well, they work their butts off for 4 years but enjoy tons of perks and also are treated like royalty on a college campus. I'm having a hard time shedding a tear for these guys.

It seems like a good way to say, "Do this for us, and, if you get caught, we'll have to fire your ass, but you'll be taken care of."

02/21/2018 - 11:57pm YouTube tv

YouTubetv is the best streaming service available for the money, hands down

01/25/2018 - 10:25pm TRex

Tough loss, but I enjoyed the Calvin and Hobbes reference in the write up

01/05/2018 - 12:52pm perfect

i wish this could be stickied at the top of every thread

11/30/2017 - 1:27pm pff grades

https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/2018-nfl-draft-prospects-to-watch…

pff mentioned this week that hurst has been the top ranking defensive player in the country for most of the year. mind telling me how a solid bench contributor beat him out? wtf

11/21/2017 - 3:57pm hey me too!

...and me too :'I

11/21/2017 - 3:50pm Your preseason thread

is a "hot takes" thread. If you actually read through it, you'll see that a lot of the bullish comments are along the lines of "13-0 and speight for Heisman!" I think there's a big difference between reasonable expectations that people on this board were espousing and people having a good time in a hot takes thread.

11/18/2017 - 7:40pm hoke

tell me which two bottom feeders hoke took from sub .25 winning percentage to serious title contenders.

11/18/2017 - 7:32pm Jesus

i really dislike people who have no idea how football works

11/14/2017 - 9:35pm Great analysis

You're quickly becoming one of the more insightful posters on this board.

Be interesting to see the average number of starts between the top 3 receivers on each team to control for how much of a burden these freshman are shouldering.

11/12/2017 - 10:40am no

he really isn't

11/06/2017 - 3:46pm also also

it was painfully obvious that kinnel was just shoving greene off off jbb who he was blocking well after the play was over. it was idiocy from start to finish.

11/01/2017 - 1:18pm West Champ?

Don't we need Penn State and Michigan Stateto lose 2 more and osu to lose 3 more for us to come out of the East? you're predicting complete meltdown of all these teams while we win out?

10/29/2017 - 10:48am wow

So you'd rather our coaches only rely on impressions given when the team performs in public? I guess we can just let the spring game box score determine our season starters from here on out. coaches can just stop evaluating talent at that point. what a relief that will be for them. idiot

10/29/2017 - 10:48am wow

10/29/2017 - 10:41am No, he's right

TIM is awful

10/22/2017 - 4:24pm Except

OSU is 16-12-1 against us in my lifetime. Indiana 0-22 against us.

10/22/2017 - 4:20pm And Carr

He generally lost 3-4 games every year. Bo too. 

10/22/2017 - 3:38pm Hmm

2011 Alabama v LSU pt 1 would like a word with you.

10/22/2017 - 3:35pm Shoot

After 27 games, Nick Saban was 19-8 at Alabama. At least Jim isn't as bad as that guy.

10/22/2017 - 3:31pm Luckily for us...

winning games is still important, so our strategy of attempting to win games should still pay off in hte modern era.

10/22/2017 - 12:44pm what about san Diego

or san Francisco?

10/22/2017 - 11:37am Relax

Try to not let it hurt your feelings

10/22/2017 - 10:47am Username checks out

still a monstrous douche tho

10/22/2017 - 9:41am get em!

That showed em, blew

10/16/2017 - 8:52am Im glad.

It sounds like you've never committed murder in Michigan. Great work! Still, try to understand that the MSP have a broader reach than the extents of your personal interaction with them.

10/13/2017 - 9:46pm offense

his offense was very effective when going against superior athletes.

10/12/2017 - 10:47pm wow

how do people feel this way??

10/10/2017 - 10:36am Ohhh, i see

But do you wish you would have run Higdon more???
/s

10/10/2017 - 10:34am You mean Clemsoning?

yea, wouldn't want to do that...

10/09/2017 - 12:01am Bama

You might only be equipped to root for Alabama. pretty much every other team in the country loses multiple games every year. their fans survive

10/08/2017 - 10:57pm Results

Did you miss the part where he's built 3 fantastic football teams out of garbage?? could you people get a grip?

10/08/2017 - 10:48pm probably not

he really took a flyer on dpj. that guy sucks

10/05/2017 - 1:01pm Whoa

Shots fired

10/01/2017 - 8:49pm Impressive

Its also one of like 3 big ten wins they've had since 2015

09/30/2017 - 2:38am awesome win for the program

Congrats to the team. Thanks for the post, WD.

09/29/2017 - 6:13pm Thank you

This was incredibly informative and made a very complex area of research easier to understand.

09/28/2017 - 4:27pm sorry, pepto

panther made a better argument and was less of a dick about it.

09/27/2017 - 2:44pm hahaha

nice
